About this Item

ROOSEVELT, Theodore. Lithograph inscribed. Boston: Charles E. Goodspeed, 1905. Single sheet, measuring approximately 18 by 24 inches. $8500.Exceptionally large, handsome bust-length etching of Teddy Roosevelt, number 91 of an unknown limitation signed by artist Sidney L. Smith, inscribed below the image to Boy Scout benefactor Charles D. Hart: "To Dr: Charles D. Hart with the regards of Theodore Roosevelt. April 8th 1906."This striking portrait of Teddy Roosevelt was originally etched by Sidney L. Smith and bears Smith's pencil signature in addition to Roosevelt's inscription. Notably, Smith was a preferred artist of the Roosevelt family and also designed Mrs. Roosevelt's personal bookplates (Cheney, et al., The Bookplate Booklet, 9). The inscribee, Charles D. Hart, was a Philadelphia physician. However, he was best known for the important contributions he made to the Boy Scouts. Hart was the President of the Philadelphia Council and the changes he made locally resonated nationally. He provided an endowment that included the property for the Hart Scout Reservation (Camp Hart), now part of the Musser Scout Reservation in Marlborough Township, Pennsylvania. Hart also formed the first troop of blind Boy Scouts, changing the public's idea of what scouts could be. Roosevelt was involved in the outdoor activities his entire life. He eventually became an honorary vice president of the Boy Scouts, though he was often at the same events as Hart prior to that, including ones recognizing the work of the Boy Scouts.Tiny corner repair not affecting image. A beautiful inscribed item. Bookseller Inventory # 105609
